(Teenage hit man has been returned to the US.)….Edgar Jimenez Lugo was arrested in Mexico at 14.
He was convicted of beheading four young men on behalf of a drug cartel. Now 17, a judge in Mexico determined he would be safer in the United States. The judge said the boy’s life was in danger. The San Diego native was transferred across the Border in San Antonio, Texas on Tuesday. His destination has not been released, but is suspected the boy will be taken to San Diego. The teen was released one week early before completing the 3-year sentence he had received in Mexico for the murders. The 3 years is the maximum allowable for a 14 year old in Mexico.
